New Guy

Postby MagicNinja85 » Sat Apr 06, 2013 6:24 pm

Hey guys, I have been living on a bunch of the Kawi forums and im happy to see a local forum for Arkansas riders. A buddy bumped into a couple of you guys today for a ride to Hot Springs and suggested the site. I probably would have been with him but I am still nursing a broken hand from a wreck a couple weeks ago. I had a cager pull out in front of me out on HWY 300. Bike took some cosmetic damage but is still running. Finally got a quick ride in yesterday (first one in almost a month) and it was awesome. Only got about 5 miles in, but it was worth it. Im gonna try to give the hand another week or two before I get back to aggressive riding, so for now it will just be some sunday cruising.

Here's my baby before and after the wreck.. and a picture of my hand.

2005 636, Yoshi slipon, PC3, and some SS brake lines (not pictured)

My buddy was the guy on the black gsxr1000, said he met ya out by hwy 300 and ended up in hot springs. We have both been looking for a good group to ride with as opposed to sitting in a parking lot with the other guys.

I'm old. your buddy told me his name. I forgot it. I'm thinking it was Jason or Josh. Good guy. Come on out and ride when you and your bike are ready. I'm the old guy on the Busa. :doh

His name was Josh. We actually got out and rode Sunday for a little bit. I did about 30 miles, I didn't want to stress the hand too much. I got fairings on their way now, so hopefully she will be ready in the next week or two. I'll be holding off on the aggressive riding for a little longer though. Took some corners on Sunday and when I had to dip left all my weight was on the plate in my hand. Didn't hurt too bad, but kept me from really getting into it.

Fairings came in today, will be putting them on Monday hopefully. All I need now is a headlight and she is ready to go.
